No problems here, but if you've not heard the 6/29/76 show before, you might want to check it out. You're right though, not your typical opener. Anytime they opened with an anomaly tune, I always thought those shows to be special. The Mission In The Rain is a rare standout on this night, and the Playin' > Wheel > Playin' is extraordinary - tight and adventurous playing throughout - probably my favourite post-'74 version of Playin'.
